PACS replacement purchasing activity will come back into focus once provider organizations begin to achieve Meaningful Use requirements for their Electronic Health Record (EHR).

CapSite™ Consulting announces the release of the 2010 Imaging IT Study, a strategic analysis of the PACS, Image Archiving / Storage, and Voice Recognition markets. The study represents an analysis of nearly 600 U.S. hospitals.

The study includes an analysis of:

  •     Historical PACS purchasing activity and adoption levels by market segment
  •     PACS vendor market penetration / share
  •     Market indicators for future Imaging IT purchases including PACS, Imaging Archive / Storage and Voice Recognition

“The U.S. PACS market is currently in a replacement phase with approximately 96% of the hospitals having already purchased a PACS solution. Based on our study findings, we see the greatest levels of Imaging IT investments over the next few years will be in Imaging Archive / Storage and Voice Recognition rather than in PACS replacement purchases of a full PACS solution,” said CapSite’s Director of Research Brendan FitzGerald. “We found approximately 80% of the PACS solutions that are currently installed in the larger provider institutions that conduct more than 120,000 exams per year were purchased prior to 2007. As a result of these findings, we expect that PACS replacement purchasing activity will come back into focus once provider organizations begin to achieve Meaningful Use requirements for their Electronic Health Record (EHR).”
